Book Review:


"I love this book and my 3 and 5 year old boys love the Monsters. The stories are well written and it is so great to learn about monsters from other countries. There is enough excitement and scariness to the stories without being overwhelming. They all have a 'soft landing' and a lesson to learn. The monsters can even become endearing." Haley

Book Review:


"This book is a favorite of my 3 year old. The stories come from different lands and are really not scary at all. The CDs that come with this book are among our favorites to listen to, something we have done many, many times. Somehow we never get tired of reading or listening to these stories though! My daughter's favorite is The Giant With No Heart in His Body." Natasha 

Book Review:

Compiled of several stories from cultures such as China, Australia and Scotland. Author includes end notes on origin of each story. Includes a "Storytime CD" to follow along with. Stories are interesting and share tales of diversity, and illustrations are colorful." Allison
